Shooting is difficult in places where people are not positive: Imtiaz Ali
The filmmaker attended a master class at the India International Film Tourism Conclave (IIFTC) yesterday and spoke about his experiences of shooting in various locations
Filmmaker Imtiaz Ali says that shooting a film is difficult in places which are bureaucratic and where people are not positive. "I haven't faced many difficulties on that front, but when we face issues while shooting in a certain area. We have to rely a lot on our line producers to help us out from that situation," he adds.
Asked whether shooting in India is problematic as compared to foreign locations, he says, "I don't think that shooting in India is very difficult. Of course, we being Indians have a natural advantage, but even for other people, I think the government is doing a lot to make it easier. I had a really good experience while shooting for films in so many countries, including Prague in the Czech Republic, Portugal, and Corsica (in France). I have shot for my films in Delhi and Kashmir a lot of times, so it feels nice to shoot in our country as well."
